A Post Medieval lead alloy token, dating to the 17th century. The token is biface, with a crescent moon on one side and the initials TC on the other. The crescent design can be seen on a token dating to the 17th century (Mitchiner and Skinner, 1985, plate 19 no.177). This is therefore a likely date for this token.

Dimensions: diameter: 18.25 mm; weight: 4.04g.
